Manic Monday: 2013 Cyber Monday Travel Deals Start Early

By: Dalia Colon

ADD TO FAVORITES

At one time or another, most of us have had a case of the Mondays -- you know, that dreaded realization that the weekend fun is over.

 

But here’s a Monday we’ll actually be excited to see coming: Cyber Monday.

 

On Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, travel companies will offer special online discounts to jumpstart our holiday shopping. Cyber Monday is great because (1) we can shop in our pajamas, and (2) we can buy our loved ones something they’re guaranteed to use -- the gift of a vacation. (Can’t say the same for that holiday sweater.) Even better, just as Black Friday is starting early this year, Cyber Monday is creeping into the weekend, too.

 

Here’s your cheat sheet for Cyber Monday -- and Friday, and Saturday, and Sunday.

  • A bunch of Marriott resorts in Florida are offering 30 percent off, starting at $90 per night. These discounts are available for travel Dec. 1, 2013, to Jan. 12, 2014. (Exact dates vary by property.) Again, I don’t have enough bandwidth to list all the offerings here, so head to marriott.com/resortcybersale or call 1-800-228-9290. Reference promo code 16C. The sale is good all day Monday, Dec. 2, 2013.
